Native American Tribal Genealogy

Join Genealogist Rick Fogarty to learn about Native American genealogy.

Native American Genealogy may seem complicated and limited in available records. However, the truth is that many records exist and are available at the touch of your fingers. Rick Fogarty will guide you through the history of tribal and governmental recordkeeping and where these records currently exist. He will provide context behind these records and give practical research tips to help take the mystery and myth out of tribal research in the U.S. Fogarty will also discuss the current state of DNA testing and its uses in tribal research. Whether you are actively researching a tribe or have curiosity about this unique area of research, there will be relevant information for genealogists and researchers of all scopes and skill levels.
